DRUMTAR by Jason Lee
The Drumtar is a wearable MIDI drum machine. It is a project that I began as part of the Despina Papadopolous’ Wearable Technology class at ITP. It has four pads that trigger drum sounds, or any sound for that matter, on a MIDI enabled device. It was designed to be a portable performance instrument and musical composition tool.
The Drumtar interfaces with a program that I wrote in Jitter. Dancers in a video clip execute moves based on beats that the user plays. The result is an interactive dance routine set to live music. The experience is similar to a game for the user and a performance for the audience.
